Current Issues for our Gifted Children


with Geraldine Townend

This Q&A session is a great opportunity to share ideas, pick brains and meet other parents in an informal and relaxed environment. 

“Why can’t my child make friends?”

“What is it about my kid – she is so inconsistent at school and I am at my wits’ end!”

“The school can’t see what I see – am I imagining things?”

“How can I get his teacher to challenge him more, but without frightening him?”

“I am so worried that my child is bored at school – what can I do without being seen as a ‘pushy parent’?”

You decide the questions you want to discuss…or the ideas to share
